A divorce coach is a skilled mental health professional, trained to manage a wide variety of emotions and issues that arise during divorce. Collaborative Divorce Coaches are all licensed mental health professionals (for example, psychologists, social workers, or marriage and family therapists). Each coach is experienced in the area of divorce and each coach receives specialized training in the Collaborative Process. Divorce coaching is not legal advice and not therapy. Divorce coaching is not about placing blame, finding fault or dealing with the past. It is designed to help an individual cope with the strong emotions generated by the major life changes created by a divorce, both positive and negative.
